Buttler, Jordan heroic perform, England gives edge rival Aussie

T20 World Cup 2021: Buttler 71 Not Out, Jordan 3-wickets, England hammer old rival Australia 8-wicket thrashing.

— Jos Buttler was near his brutal best as England thrashed old rival Australia by eight wickets with 50 balls to spare at the cricket T20 World Cup on Saturday.

Buttler smashed 71 not out from 32 balls with five thumping sixes as England’s batters quickly finished off what its bowlers had started by knocking the Aussies over for 125.

Openers Buttler and Jason Roy put on a rapid 66 to start England’s chase. Jonny Bairstow was with Buttler to finish it off, and also didn’t hang around by launching two sixes in his 16 not out from 11 balls.

England’s bowlers, with Chris Jordan leading with 3-17, tore through Australia at the start, with the Australians slumping to 21-4 in 6.1 overs. Australia rallied to see out its full 20 overs, but only just with Mitchell Starc the last man out off the final ball of the innings.

A unforgettable night for Australia.

This is their biggest defeat in terms of balls (50) in T20Is and their biggest loss in terms of wickets at the T20WorldCup.

They have three emphatic wins from three games and sit top of Group 1, with the top two progressing to the semi-finals.

England play Sri Lanka in Sharjah on Monday before finishing the group with a match against South Africa at the same venue next Saturday.
